We really don’t know anything regarding the Star Wars trilogy projects being developed by Rian Johnson and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. But a new rumor has surfaced regarding Benioff and Weiss’ project that is sure to get fans excited.

According to an inside source who reached out to Star Wars News, their film is going to be set during the time of The Old Republic:

   “…approached about working on the next movie this Autumn. It is not the Rian Johnson trilogy, it is the Game of Thrones guys’ first movie, and it is set during the Old Republic, as Disney wants to open up the Star Wars timeline and appeal to a more ‘Game of Thrones‘ style audience.”

Apparently the source provided proof they have worked on every Star Wars film since Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm and claims they are “95% confident this is accurate.” So, with that being said you should take this news with a grain of salt.

The source goes on to offer some additional details saying that the story is set “hundreds of years prior to the Skywalkers, so think almost Star Wars meets Lord of the Rings.” I certainly like the sound of that! Who wouldn’t!?

As far as where production on the film currently stands, it’s said that the art departments are currently doing pre-production work, the script is being finalized, and that they are looking to start shooting in the Fall.

Even though we don’t know if this is 100% true, would you be a happy Star Wars fan if it does turn out to be true?

It does VL but to be honest, I was not impressed with the first two movies. Just watching Luke look like a punk turned me away a bit. Kill Solo and Luke is afraid to fight. Great job writers.

:agree:  

I don't like the new ones either, not the characters, not the story line, they just botched it all up.

I guess we can only hope that do right this time around, either that or we're in for another disappointment.

I've been a Star Wars fan since Star Wars first came out when I was 13 or 14, it was just called Star Wars back then, no A New Hope attached. When my son and I went to see what Rian Johnson did we came out drove home and didn't talk about it all, that has never happened before with any movie we've been to together, ever. If Rian Johnson has anything to do with any future Star Wars movie in the future, as it appears he will, my fandom most likely will not include anything he gets his dumb ass hands on.

Totally agree with you Nightrider. I was once a Star Wars fan back in the days, but those new ones made me hate that franchise real quick. My kids say they still like them, but I think they just want to contradict me, lol

I liked some of the new films but not the latest ones with Daisy. Just the whole Skywalker thing killed it for me. I will watch ofc but these films are not on the top of my list.

Agree with you guys chouette and bankska22, I did really enjoy Force Awakens though, Rogue One was alright and Solo not as bad as I thought it was going to be :) Fingers crossed for #9
